Grouping For Looks is a page-by-page retelling of the Looking For Group saga through the lens of a mirror universe where Cale is a goateed tyrant and Richard is a holy soul trying to set him on a good path.
EXT. THE CITY OF KETHENECIA – ARCHWAY OF THE GOLDEN STATUE – DAY
Tavor stands before the Golden Statue, glaring at Cale as the blonde elf approaches with swords drawn.
What are you doing?
I had my sword at your throat a minute ago. Nothing in my life has ever felt so right.
Tavor holds his sword up defensively.
But… the statue!
Could be fake. Or maybe you built it. You’ve been here long enough.
Which reminds me…
Krunch walks across an engraved stone tablet at the foot of the statue.
There’s some script on this archway.
I was about to get back to the topic of how Tavor is here and ali-
What does it say, father?
“Journey back to the future.”
See? Maybe I could craft a statue, but could I create a portal?
I guess that depends on how you ever got-
No. You couldn’t.
Cale lowers his sword, ignoring a frustrated Richard, who kicks the archway.
For a second, as the skin of Richard’s toes touches the stone of the archway, a puff of blue smokey magic appears before the statue.
It needs power.
And you have a power source.
All eyes turn to Richard. All eyes except Richard’s. That would be weird. His eyes lock on Tavor.
I won’t be your battery unless you tell me the truth.
Open this portal and I promise the truth will be revealed.
Richard turns towards the arch and cracks his knuckles.
Krunch hops on Benny’s shoulder. She whispers to her adopted father.
There’s no way he’s keeping that promise.
At this point, I want to see how long Tavor can go without telling Richard how he’s alive.
